Festival Insurance

The music never stops with Insure Our Event festival insurance.

Types of festivals are diverse and all-encompassing. From rock and pop, to EDM to country; festivals each have their unique audience and atmosphere. Beer festival, food festivals and car festivals are all beautiful examples of popular events. They also hold their own unique risks which could result in a claim.

Insure Our Event strongly believe no two events are the same and therefore should be treated individually. A one-dimensional checklist will not suffice, all events should have their individual needs and specifications catered to. This demands a quality comprehensive insurance policy and an expert team to oversee the details.

Insure Our Event are experienced at providing comprehensive music festival insurance. We provide a range of cover types, as well as cancellation cover and adverse weather insurance. Our insurance ensures festival organisers are not hurt financially if their festival does not go ahead due to unforeseen circumstances. There are also many elements comprising a music festival which need be covered by a comprehensive insurance policy.

Types of policy

  • Mandatory public liability cover for party organisers
  • Employers’ liability insurance, covering employees or volunteers
  • The cost of fixing or replacing damaged or stolen equipment which has been hired and you are legally responsible for
  • Cover of expenses if your party is cancelled or postponed due to unforeseen circumstances such as adverse weather conditions
  • If the party is abandoned, cover the costs of hiring entertainment and equipment as well as venue and catering.

These various types of cover involved within a comprehensive policy will ensure you and your finances are protected. Everything from equipment breakage to accident and injury, the cover provided is wide ranging and flexible. Although complex, the general rule is the larger the event, the more elements involved, the more cover will be needed. Only an expert insurance operator such as Insure Our Event will be able to sufficiently insure all eventualities.

Effective risk management is crucial to improving safety. It also significantly reduces the chances of your event needing to pay vast amounts of money in legal costs and damages. Insure Our Event has created a “Spot The Risk” test, demonstrating the risks involved in running an event.

Every music festival is different, however public liability insurance is required by law for any public event. Insure Our Event also recommends purchasing Employer’ liability insurance, Event equipment cover, festival cancellation insurance and adverse weather cover.

These separate policies will ensure festival organisers are protected from drastic unforeseen eventualities. Insure Our Event rolls these policies into one transparent pay-package which is flexible and tailored to your festival’s requirements.

If the event is cancelled or postponed and tickets for travel have been purchased prior, this should be included in the compensation cover. However, this is dependent on the stipulations of the cover and would differ between agreements.

For full clarity of the details, please contact Insure Our Event or your insurance provider.

The cost of insurance often depends upon the size of the event, the quality of cover and the amount of policies included in your insurance agreement.
